Ride Hurricane Ridge Olympic Nat'l Park Aug 8

 Visiting SECOG member wanted to see part of the Olympic Peninsula on the tour originating in FL. Nicole will continue on her return trip after we ride Hurricane Ridge.
 Due to being on a Mon just setting the time and place to meet in Port Angeles at 1 PM at the ferry dock area. Look for a cafe.

Is that an in and out run? Looks like non paved to the southeast.

There will be one more Floridian up there, but probably not till Tuesday. Schedule is still fluid.

I'm looking to make this ride plus the other ride (3 pass). Would be good to ride with everyone and finally meet face to face after all the threads. :)

 Yes Randy. The paved road portion is a dead end at Hurricane Ridge.

One thing worth mentioning is this road is located inside a U.S. National Park, so there is a cost of admission.  It's worth every penny to ride that road.  :motonoises:

I know we're still about 2 weeks out and not to jinx our nice weather now, looking at the details the meeting area is still the ferry area at 1pm, correct? Curious if folks are meeting earlier for breakfast, say Gig Harbor then riding to Mason Lake/Shelton then upto 101? I'm sure there are a few other routes and open to suggestions.

 Due to this being on a Monday did not try to schedule other enroute meet ups nor did I look at the ferry schedule (Port Townsend?). Anyone with a need to meet elsewhere and when can offer suggestions we may be able to accommodate.
 So, so far we still meet at Port Angeles ferry terminal near the dock looking for a cafe.
 We will be leaving the Tacoma Area and riding up Hwy 16 past Bremerton then continuing north on Hwy3 then 104 over the Hood Canal, then on toward Port Angeles.
 Nicole has a schedule to keep and a lots of ground to ride back to FL so this ride event fits the schedule so to continue HER RIDE by ferry and east on Hwy 20 over the Cascade Highway/North Cascade National Park/aka Washington Alps..
Nice to see more of the Olympic Peninsula... next time?

I wish I had more time to allocate to riding this area.  So much to see and so little time. I only have a certain amount of time away from slave camp and I also need to spend a day or two at my mailing address before I ship off to work again. Its a vicious cycle!

No worries, I understand. Was wondering for the many reasons you both mentioned.

Nicole, you might want to consider riding the North Cascades on SR 20 at some point.

I see that now. It would be nice to pick her up on the east side like Wintrop or Twisp and join in on the fun for awhile.

Tim, I will be staying the night in Marblemount on the 8th. So I will be passing through Winthrop Tues (9th)morning and then taking Hwy 20 all the way to Tiger, and then south down to Hwy 41 into Post Falls. Looking to spend Tues night in Thompson Fall MT.
Would love to have you ride along :)

I will still be in town on the 9th. If we were still driving to Western KS for a reunion I would be leaving then. But my bride decided we should fly. So we are not leaving till Thursday.

The Marble Mount to Winthrop run is a great way to see the Cascades. Very popular with those who rides a motorcycle.

If you guys want to see some cool sport bikes in action, I'll being running my GSXR at The Ridge Motorsports Park on Monday (and Saturday/tomorrow).  It's only 2 1/2 miles off of 101 just north of Shelton.  If so, shoot me a text at 253-224-9838, and I can tell you where to find where I'm set up in the paddock.   No admission but you'll have to sign a waiver at the gate to get into the paddock.

I'm looking at trying to add this route into a trip later in the year ... how much time do I need to budget for a proper ride from Port Angeles up to the top of Hurricane Ridge and back down?
